Spoonflower Fabric of the Week NauticalContest

Nautical Designs

Spoonflower Design Challenge: June 30, 2010

In our closest Fabric Of the Week contest ever, Lisa Mirella's "Electronic Castaways" design has defeated Cean Irminger's "Shy Ness" monster by exactly one vote. Whew. Given current events in the Gulf of Mexico, it might have been appropriate to photograph the nautical winner with an oil stain seeping across the fabric... but that would have been a downer, no?
